Dogs Like Kids They Feel Safe With

Filed in

When you think about kid/dog pairs, Timmy and Lassie may come to mind. But if you have a dog or a child, you probably know that the two aren’t always a match made in heaven. Considering that the latest statistics show that 50% of children will be bitten by a dog before the age of 12, it can be a downright dangerous combination. We like this video because it is a Canis Film Festival 2011 Runner-Up, AND it demonstrates how to use clicker training (for the dogs) and TAGteach (for the kids) to train kids and dogs to greet one another safely.

This week, find more resources about furthering the friendships of kids and dogs on sale in the clickertraining.com store.
